Being that the British Film Institute is something of an authority on movies, I thought I’d check out their recommendations for the Top 50 Children’s Movies. Even as a self-confessed movie buff, I still find their choices a little highbrow. If any of you are able to get one of your kids to sit through either Francois Truffaut’s 400 Blows then you might want to consider taking your kids off Ritalin. Check out the list here, and look below for my personal top 5:
- Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (Tim Burton)
- Bedknobs and Broomsticks (Robert Stevenson)
- The General (Buster Keaton)
- Big (Penny Marshall)
- Duck Soup (Leo McCarey)
If you’re a good DVD hunter, you should be able to find most of these titles across Beijing. What do you think of my list?
